The 20 sparkling full length performances from The Nat King Cole Show featured on this DVD prove what a consummate artist Cole was, whether singing in his intimitable style or demonstrating his skills as a pianist. The track listing includes many Cole faovrites such as "When I Fall In Love", "Somewhere Along The Way", "Tenderly", "The Christmas Song", "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire" and of course his signature tune "Mona Lisa". Several of the guests who appeared on the show are also featured in duets with Nat including Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis, Jr., The Oscar Peterson Trio, Johnny Mercer and the Mills Brothers. Between the songs there are interviews with Nat King Cole's wife Maria, his three daughters Natalie, Casey and Timolin, his brother Freddy, and with Bob Henry, the producer/director of the original series. The whole program is linked by narration from actor Dennis Haysbert.
